WEST CONSHOHOCKEN, PA - ASTM announced a name change to ASTM International, a move the organization said reflects the increasingly global application and use of ASTM standards.

ASTM technical committees represent a diverse range of industries. Examples of the organization's global reach include a recent agreement involving ASTM Committee D01 on Paint and Related Coatings, Materials and Applications with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) involving the use of globally accepted standards in the paint and coatings industry.
